The amount of food donated determines the number of boxes per family. Generally speaking, each family receives four boxes of food. Please keep in mind, the average empty car trunk can only hold four boxes. If adopting two families, you more than likely will have to make two trips.

It is recommended that you adopt no more than two families. Keep in mind you will need to have space in your car for 3-4 boxes of food, plus the children's gifts, per family on delivery day. An empty car trunk can typically only hold 4 boxes
No. A voucher will be provided for you to purchase a gift for each child. Shoppers may spend their own money, above and beyond what is on the voucher, but it is certainly not required.
When families call to apply for assistance, every effort is made to get all contact information. For many, their circumstances can change without notice. If you are not able to reach them by phone, please make an effort to go by their house and try to make contact. If after several tries you are unable to contact the family, please notify the LCCT office at 816-439-4396.
Yes, because we are providing perishable items, we can not leave the food and gifts on their porch! When families apply for assistance, they are instructed to be home on delivery day. When you call to ask for their wish list, it is helpful to remind them of the delivery day and what time you will be coming to their home.
Vouchers are determined by how much money is raised and how many children apply, so the voucher amount may change from year to year.
100 percent of the funds raised goes to the LCCT program for purchases like perishable food items, gift vouchers and paper products for the families. You can make a donation online or by mailing a check payable to Liberty Community Christmas Tree to 1600 S Withers Rd., Liberty, MO 64068.
The vouchers provided are intended to be used for the children. If you would like to purchase items for the parents with your own money, that is at your discretion.
